Overpass availability this morning

Hello everybody,

first of all, I’m sorry for the degraded availability of the Overpass API this morning. There is a pattern of costly but useless requests that overloads the server. As the requests come in low numbers from around 15.000 different IP addresses, the usual IP address based quota mechanism does not help.

If your IP adress is from one of the ranges                 

then please contact me (e.g. per private message here or by email). If these are benign requests then I would like to sort out with you how to solve your actual problem.
